Adamis Pharmaceuticals and DMK Pharmaceuticals Announce Agreement and Plan of Merger

Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, a specialty biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products in various therapeutic areas, including opioid overdose, allergy, respiratory and inflammatory disease, and DMK Pharmaceuticals, Corp., a private, clinical-stage biotechnology company at the forefront of endorphin-inspired drug design focused on developing novel treatments for opioid use disorder (OUD) and other neuro-based diseases, today announced that the companies have entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Agreement”). Pursuant to the Agreement, Adamis will acquire DMK, including its library of approximately 750 small molecule neuropeptide analogues and on-going government funding for its development programs.

“Last fall, we initiated a process to explore strategic alternatives for the company with the goal of maximizing stockholder value,” stated David J. Marguglio, CEO of Adamis. “After engaging in a thorough process of exploring potential alternatives and transactions, we believe a merger with DMK is the best path forward for Adamis and the strategy that has the potential to deliver significant value to Adamis’ shareholders. I believe by combining Adamis’ commercial products and development infrastructure with DMK’s clinical-stage programs and library of small molecules, under Dr. Versi’s leadership, the new company will have the potential to develop multiple groundbreaking treatments and ultimately grow shareholder value.”

At the close of the merger, Eboo Versi, the current CEO of DMK, will assume the role of CEO and chairman of the combined company. Dr. Versi explained, “There are substantial synergies between Adamis and DMK. The combined company will have both the expertise and infrastructure to further the development of DMK’s potentially life-changing products to address large unmet medical needs. I believe that each of our clinical-stage product candidates has blockbuster potential, and we only need one to succeed to significantly increase shareholder value. I believe the combined companies present a risk diversified portfolio which is especially important in a time of market uncertainty.”
